Jesus says the options are clear. On one side there is the voice of safety. You can build a fire in the hearth, stay inside, and stay warm and dry and safe.
Or you can hear the voice of adventure—God’s adventure.
Instead of building a fire in your hearth, build a fire in your heart. Follow God’s impulses. Adopt the child. Move overseas. Teach the class. Change careers. Run for office. Make a difference.
Don’t listen to the whines of those who have settled for a second-rate life and want you to do the same so they won’t feel guilty. Your goal is not to live long; it’s to live.
Sure it isn’t safe, but what is?
There are so many more things you can do with your life for the glory of God than are listed in this excerpt. Find what God wants you to do with your life...and do it! There is no greater blessing than the blessings that come from obedience to God!
Question: Are you ready to step outside of your safe zone?
